The New York Times has called James Prosek "the Audubon of the fishing world," and in Fly-Fishing the 41st, he uses his talent for descriptive writing to illuminate an astonishing adventure. Beginning in his hometown of Easton, Connecticut, Prosek circumnavigates the globe along the 41st parallel, traveling through Spain, Greece, Turkey, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, China, and Japan. Along the way he shares some of the best fishing in the world with a host of wonderfully eccentric and memorable characters.

About the Author:

James Prosek is a writer and artist. Dubbed “the Audubon of the fishing world” by the New York Times, his books include Trout, The Complete Angler, and Fly-Fishing the 41st. He lives in Easton, Connecticut.

Review:

“James Prosek has eloquently demonstrated that angling is a kind of universal language: he has taken us on an unforgettable journey.”” (Thomas McGuane, author of The Cadence of Grass and The Longest Silence: A Life in Fishing)

“Resonant and lyrical..stunning slices of imagery that linger in the mind.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“A hit.” (BookPage)

“Refreshing...Prosek’s passion and earnest investigation more than make up for any absence of tall fish tales.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Fresh, engaging, and intensely interesting. A joy to read.” (Annie Proulx)

“The travelogue format of Fly-Fishing the 41st keeps things jumping.” (Men's Health)

“Prosek’s enthusiasm for fish by no means blinds him to the charms and eccentricities of the places he goes.” (Booklist)
